I run 25-30 miles a week and have been wearing Saucony Progrid Omni's for nearly 4 years. I have been through several pairs of the 7, 8, and 9 series and replace them every 400 miles. Typically when I purchase a new pair, I slip them on for my first run and I feel like I'm running on a cloud! After breaking down my shoes for 400 miles, a new pair offers the cushioning and support that I love about this line. I purchased the 10's (I always buy the older model when a new model comes out - they're cheaper!) when the price dropped and expected the same feel, or at least something very similar, as the shoes I've been wearing for so long. I was very disappointed. There is virtually no cushioning or arch support in this shoe. They feel a lot lighter than the older models, but I only care about lighter in a racing flat. I need a shoe that is soft AND supportive, and the Omni 10 is neither. I'm returning them today and going back to the Omni 9.
